Over the past few days, we have received several phone calls about the many butterflies that can be found nectaring right now around town. Some callers would like to know what kind of butterfly they are looking at. Others, are calling to report about the many Monarchs on their flowers. We would like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the Painted Lady Butterfly (Vanessa cardu). It is a common butterfly to the United States and is one of the most widely distributed butterflies in the world. The Painted Lady, like the Monarch, also migrates South for the winter; however, it is often a lesser known butterfly. Thank you for keeping an eye out on our local butterfly population!
